    Are the Seeking Alpha writers credible? Just curious what their overall track record is in terms of being right. I am out effective tomorrow and so, see myself as neutral at this point, no axe to grind regarding the bear or bull side.

    There is a plethora of Seeking Alpha writers- over 15,000 of them. Each with their own take/opinion. Anybody who is qualified can apply to be a contributor. I'm sure you can research each author's "track record."

    Here is how somebody can become a contributor:

    So, sounds like a crap shoot in terms of reliability.

    Well, that's with anyone's "analysis." Just someone's educated guess about what will happen.

    Got that right. Just like a broken clock.

    As of COB yesterday, all of our accounts are out of the stock market. A very simple indicator seems like it could be the trick for this market. Buy at the end of April only if price closes above the 200 day simple moving average effective 4/30/2020. Following that simple indicator would have had me out for all of March because price closed below the 200 SMA on 2/29/2020. It suggests to be out of stocks all of April since price closed below the. 200 day SMA on 3/31/2020.

    I'm happily watching the markets tank and sitting happily 80/20 (G,C). I'll bite back in a bit at a time over the coming weeks...but I'm curious if you have your TSP contributions going in to G as well. I was 100 C prior to Feb 22, now I'm 45 C, 45 S, 10 G and happy with that.

    What's the take here on contributions? Just curious, Im stoked where I'm at.

    Beware of the inevitable "COVID-19 Has Hit Its Peak" rally. It will likely occur before the true economic shock sets in. Don't get caught up in it!

    Always, always, always have your contributions going into (G), and then allocate out from there. Or, you might find yourself contributing into equities on a down day. I'd much rather miss an up day than get caught with my pants down on a down day.
